all my trucks are psd's so im used to a whistle, and im sure it would just blend into the rest of the motor noise and whatnot without too much annoyance

I sure dig the bumps and coilovers. How much better do the coilovers work than airshocks (mostly concerned with at speed bumps)?? thx.
the ride and the way the whole jeep works is 100% better. the air bumps are worth every penny. you can cruise through stuff now without any hard hits. the old setup unloaded and the poly bumps worked but were not a soft impact like the air bumps. i am going to move the back coilovers in and up yet and tune the shocks and bumps in. becky smiled all weekend except for the 10 minutes i drove it.

The intake kit is the Spectre 9900. Joescamaro hooked me up with the info on that. Yes, you could flip the intake around and run it that way, I actually asked about it but there was room so why bother with that. The kit comes with a shroud if you want to use it. My cowl is pretty much wide open and the motor never got above 180 all weekend. I had to order the piece that goes from the air cleaner to the MAS seperate or you can go hunt a junkyard. Way more responsive.....highly recommend this kit. The piece of tube that comes with it is long enough to cut and use in the 2 seperate places.

You can find them anywhere from $149-$200.

I like the coilovers a ton better. The air shocks raised a lot when they got hot. Had I put them in the rear as well that may not have been an issue.....but the coilovers stay level and felt very stable. Still need to add the limiter straps for the rear and play with the nitrogen levels. The bumps are hands down a must. That thing used to beat the shit out of me after a weekend wheeling.....now it rides great.

Shouldn't these motors run 210 for best power numbers?

No idea Tim, mines always run 180-200. Before the intake kit after being run hard it would hop up to 230 for a minute and stutter at start up. This was the first trip out with it and it ran great. So ????

Thanks, I gotta do something. I hit 170 IAT on the street and peg the gauge on the dunes.

The 5.3L comes with a 186* thermostat, I imagine the 6.0 is the same or very close. A lot of people drop it to 180*.

Huh, that's interesting. Both my work trucks have 5.3's and they both run right at 210 always.

It's just where it opens ( 186*) not where it runs. 195-210 would be normal operating temp.

I got mine from NAPA, its the same 186* stat but their website is impossible to navigate.

Sorry for the confusion.

I dont know who did your computer but you might want to check with them because alot of tuners will set the computer for a 160 stat just it helps with detonation on the 6.0

Just curious, where did you find that? I found 160, 180, 186 and 195. I couldn't find a 212.

I didn't buy one, I used the one that came with my engine. Have I personally seen a 100*C stat? No, it's just what I have read and that's where my engine runs. Using my scanner running real time and leaving it hooked up while wheeling, my engine stays right around 208 - 210*F.
